Hooray = Sex with Instead Cups during period!

I've been using the DivaCup for about 2 years now, but the other day I knew I was going to see my boyfriend, and possibly do a little "frolicking" ;) But being on the rag, I didn't want to deal with the usual mess (besides, when I was with my ex a few years back, pre-cup, it was kind of weird to see him afterwards with a bloody condom) so I went to Walgreens and got a box of Insteads...instead. Here's my evaluation:

Pros: Yay, no more bloody sex! My bf said he couldn't feel it, either. I find the Instead to be just as comfortable as the DivaCup, surprisingly.

Cons: While it didn't leak during my frolicking session, it leaked when I tried it during the daytime. Looks like I haven't really gotten the hang of it yet. Next time I give it a go, I'll let you gals know :-) But, hooray for now! I am just sad that if/when I get a Paragard IUD, I won't be able to use my Insteads...or can I?
